7 New Restaurants Coming to Santa Rosa! (Plus Donut Porn)

The number of new restaurants on the horizon is epic for downtown Santa Rosa.

Like a field of daffodils, restaurants are popping up all over downtown Santa Rosa. We’ve counted 7 in the works, or soon-to-open. Here’s the current list of all the new spots we can’t wait to try. Stay tuned for opening details.

Here’s the current count:

Parish Cafe: The Big Easy comes to Santa Rosa with the announcement that The Parrish’s Rob Lippincott will be opening a second restaurant at the former La Bufa. Here come the beignets, chicory coffee, and muffuletta sandwiches. The original Parish Cafe is in Healdsburg.

Acre Coffee and Donuts: Local coffee roasters are expanding their Sonoma County coffee house empire with a new spot downtown, currently in development. But the real excitement is the donuts they’re bringing with them. The Petaluma-based company has recently begun gourmet donut production with the help of two local chefs, Gillian Tyranauer (Zuni, Downtown Bakery, Shed, Ramen Gaijin) and Laura Matis (Osteria Stellina). Flavors have included matcha-glazed, strawberry verbena, and Meyer lemon, made daily at 5 a.m. Owner Steve Decosse says the East Petaluma shop has lines each morning for the donuts, which will soon come to the Montgomery Village location and the forthcoming downtown location.

Miso Good Ramen: Opening at the former Torch of India, there’s not much info yet, but we’re guessing, um, ramen?

Banh mi and boba: The long-empty Subway on Mendocino Ave. (conveniently located across the street from the Press Democrat offices) will feature Vietnamese sandwiches and boba tea.

Tipsy Taco: Imminent opening? Little info on this spot, though signage has gone up with a promise to open soon at the former Brasa.

Two Tread Brewing: We’re still eagerly awaiting news on this 10,000-square-foot brewpub at the Santa Rosa Plaza. Especially since superstar chef Ryan “Seamus” McCarthy is heading up the kitchen.

Beer Baron: Sonu Chandi tells BiteClub he’ll now be collaborating with established East Bay restaurateur Harpreet Singh Judge, who owns Beer Baron Bar & Kitchen in Pleasanton and Beer Baron Bar in Livermore on this high-profile restaurant space.

    1. Yes, in truckloads of donuts and coffee. They pull up to my desk each morning and unload. That’s also how the Press Democrat pays me. In donuts. Mmmmm….

  1. WOOT! Some fun, new choices. Also especially excited about Two Tread Brewing. While admittedly not a beer aficionado, I hear the cocktail & wine list will be quite nice, too, & the food… wow… Seamus?? Impressive! Cheers to all of these!

  2. I think I saw signage for a Poke joint in the Mendo Safeway shopping center. Going in between Five Guys and Cold Stone.

  3. All I see are sweet donuts. Great for maybe 2 days per month. Where are the savory choices for the other 28 days+? How about a quality Korean spot, with fresh table side grilled meats? Fish taco cart at Dillon or Doran, cater to the surf crowd? My thoughts make millions son!

  4. You guys missed to count number 8 , is cascabel mexican restaurant in montgomery village , in place of high tech burrito before
